New house resto

  1. Looking at deals on new Miele... Another expense is just shat I need bit think it's the motor gone on mine. It started to slow down so I turned it off before the familiar motor burning smell could even begin and it didn't work again. :(
  2. I'd go for the Cat & Dog - we've got one, five years old and it hasn't exploded yet. Great on carpets, if you've got any, has hoovered up pounds of collie hair. Only minus point is that the anti-smell charcoal filters are quite pricey, but you only change them once in a blue moon. Might be worth buying from John Lewis (I have moral objections to buying anything from Currys, as they're so crap), as you get a 2 year guarantee.

    Re @vanorak: does he moult excessively, or scratch the door frames? If you find him sliding across the floor on his bum, he may need worming...

  5. I did have a look at motor prices - £65!
  6. That's the problem with people these days - once something gets over a certain age no one wants to put the effort in to keep them running! :rolleyes:

  7. if i could get it sorted for that money i'd definitely keep it but i'm unsure if it is motor or what could go wrong next... to get someone to look at it you have to pay a deposit, until they quote you for the job, if you accept the deposit is paid back... if not, not :/
